GBP or Riu ocho Rios ??

I'm confused about both hotels ?

Which one is the best ? Our priorities is the quality of food and service and where we can explore the local community by walking ...

Beach is not a top priority ..

Thanks

Neither resort is within walking distance to a local community but you can take a taxi and then walk around.

If you want a resort that is in a town, have a look at Negril, especially resorts that are located on Long Bay (what some resorts mistakenly refer to as the 7 mile beach). Negril community is built-along town paralleling the beach.

I will keep to adults-only first located on Long Bay:

Hedonism (over 18)

Sandals Negril (couples only)

Couples Swept Away (couples only)

Negril has some AIs that have adult-only section and that may be of interest. Suggest Azul Sensatori Negril.

In MoBay I suggest Sandals Carlyle as it is a small all butler resort; it is adjacent to MoBay's Hip Strip so walking about does not need a taxi. Sandals has three resorts in MoBay and they have a program of "stay at one, play at three;" they provide the transportation between them.
